There’s been too much going on here the last few days. Even today we have to go back to town. I mentioned yesterday that we had to go by the Sheriff’s Office but what we needed as actually at the jail. Ughh . . why is it that going to the jail makes me feel like I’ve done something wrong? I was happy to get out of there but today, we have to go back to pick up the paperwork. Today will be quick . . in and out . . but I’ll still feel like I’m some place I shouldn’t be. OK . . I’m crazy. I would be a terrible criminal because I’d worry all the time about getting caught. Yesterday Vince knew I didn’t like being there, but who would?? He kept saying . . Did you ever get a parking ticket you didn’t pay? Do you think you ran a red light and a camera caught you, sent the ticket to you in the mail and you never got it and didn’t pay it? Darn, Vince! Those things COULD happen but I don’t think they did. I’m good .. I’ve never even gotten a speeding ticket and have been driving over 50 years but .. what if . . ?
OK . . Sunday Stitches . . we’re not here to talk about my potential criminal activities! 🙂
The house is getting close to halfway finished. I love stitching houses and I really love red houses. This red is Red Rocks by Weeks and it’s one of my favorite reds (but, the truth is – all reds are my favorite reds!).
Color is such a crazy thing. See how light the fabric looks in the photo above? The red is actually close to right.
See how dark the house color is above? But, the fabric color is close to right.
Also, look at the white fence how it hardly shows against the fabric but stitch that red house behind the white fence and the fence really pops!
This fabric is Sand Dune by Seraphim. I probably write this about almost every color linen I stitch on but, if I could only have one linen forever, it might be this one.
I love cross stitching and am so happy I started doing it again. Thanks to my friends who encouraged me – so many of you!

One of our sons once got a traffic ticket that he shouldn’t have. He wanted to contest it. Dad said, ‘just pay the fine, I’ll pay it’. Remember a young man’s feeling of being right!?! So I told him I would go to court with him. OMG, we are sitting there and people in orange jumpsuits begin coming in with an unpleasant shuffling and jingling and a few guys in uniform appear. Son’s ticket was dismissed, officer was chastised. All ended well but I had been very uncomfortable and told our son that we don’t belong in a place like this…ever again! So far,so good!!
Right – sometimes those kinds of scenes teach lessons that are never forgotten.
